PENELOPE BASS

In some of the furthest reaches of the Alaskan wilderness, a modern homesteading community was held under the spell of a charismatic but maniacal patriarch in what became an era-defining clash between pioneers and environmentalists. Veteran Alaskan journalist Tom Kizzia gives a dramatic account of Robert “Papa Pilgrim” Hale in his new non-fiction book, Pilgrim’s Wilderness: A True Story of Faith and Madness on the Alaska Frontier.
